Subject: Title Only: Content Missing!
This is especially interesting after the popular book and film "Awakenings". The book is by Oliver Sacks.

This film may offer clues to sleep researchers. The patient is unable to prevent herself from falling asleep, even in the middle of performing a nose-touching manoeuvre.

My first download was incomplete, thanks to the archivist for fixing the problem.
